"The Data Revolution will provide work for everyone who wants to find the truth. The only way we can see the truth is through the data, which at one moment or another, represents a perspective of it. In the new digital world, and the internet of things, our ability to work with data will become as basic a requirement as being able to speak. The challenge is enhancing people’s paradigms and skills so that they are able to engage with data. This requires a movement of passionate people." (William Evans)
